HARBOURVIEW HOUSE

Harbourview House is the injection of a familiar opulence within the existing home. As home to a young family and their three sons, the brief needed to provide an inbuilt robustness while also allowing for integrated storage and support spaces.

"Penman Brown has injected both luxury and a heightened sensory experience through the composition of each space, all connected through a shared refinement."

The result sees a kitchen with multiple height seating scenarios and a streamlined approach with minimal fixtures and fittings to reinforce the space as a place of calm order. The use of honed marble further reinforces the enduring nature of the space, offering a resilience and hardwearing front to all the workings of the family kitchen, while its subtle veining adds an interesting and uniquely patterned element.

Layered textures, finishes and patterns add a welcomed richness while also sitting within a light and luxury focused approach. Taking inspiration from the home’s setting and its adjacency to the ocean, an overarching sense of calm and composure is brought inward and reinterpreted through materiality and palette.

The bathroom, ensuite and powder room combine natural stone and light-coloured ceramic tiles in a banded approach. At the core of these spaces is a shared philosophy of restoration, calm and luxury, echoing the home’s location. Through the addition of texture against smoother elements, a welcomed balance fills each of the spaces.

There is a meditative element to the spaces, whether in the act of creation within the kitchen or the moments of reflection and recharge within the bathrooms. Ensuring this was carried through into the spatial qualities and overall feel was imperative.

"Penman Brown combines a considered depth with a welcomed lightness and creates a series of mini destinations within the one home."
